Well the race is on…the Miss South Pacific Pageant entrants have begun arriving in Port Moresby and what a full on week it will be. Workshops, state visits, community visits, cultural shows, sponsor visits, floats and rehearsalsÂ and last but not least the Crowning at the Indoor Stadium at Waigani on Saturday the 27th of November.
Although the Miss South Pacific Pageant has been running since 1987, this will be the first time that PNG will be playing host and the second time a Melanesian country has hosted this event. Fiji was host last year with Miss Fiji Marawelesi Nailatikau taking out the Miss South Pacific crowning last year, so maybe PNG’s Rachael Sapery James will be in the running for our first hosting of the event.
Judgng by the over 800 members on the pageant Facebook page a regional interest is definately keen on who will win. You can actually put in your vote as well on their website so if you have a favourite go to their site here.
